For more than 40 years, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health has been helping individuals to transform their lives and uplift others. Today, Kripalu is the largest yoga-based retreat and educational center in North America and home to the Kripalu Schools of Yoga, Ayurveda, and IYT.

The Kripalu School of Yoga offers aspiring teachers the opportunity to deepen their practice through immersion trainings, while mastering the skills necessary to lead others in the practice of Kripalu Yoga.

What is Kripalu Yoga?

Kripalu Yoga is an integrated system of self-transformation that empowers you to realize your full potential. The journey begins as you revitalize the body through postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques. It deepens as you learn to focus awareness, enabling you to enter into meditative states that awaken compassion and clear the mind. Through the practice of Kripalu Yoga, you discover how to nurture the roots of health, catalyze personal growth, live with greater skillfulness and joy, and transform your sense of what it means to be alive.
